Synopsis: Positive psychology is identifying factors, processes and interventions that enable people to thrive and have positive mental health. The purpose of this presentation will be to stimulate thinking and knowledge of how research findings regarding strengths, positive engagement, positive emotions and positive cognitions might be applied in SOC practice at both the client and the organizational level. The poster will include whether the goals of individualized services with a child and family should explicitly include improved subjective well-being, increased hope/optimism and greater engagement in activities that strengthen and build on talents and preferences. Possible future directions of research will be discussed.
